1) "Joann's Announcement"
It's pretty clear what happened here: Charles Barkley, the 6-foot-6 former professional basketball player was hosting, and SNL writers had to find a way to put him in a dress. That's pretty much the only marginally entertaining thing about this sketch, and it's not even really funny enough to justify the whole scene. Meanwhile, in order to keep Barkley on screen in drag for as long as possible, SNL writers made his character a woman who comes out to her friends while they pelt her with comments like, "I'm shocked!" and "You're such a girly-girl." OMG, a dude in a dress.
